We spent three nights here and every aspect was excellent. In two weeks of travel they had the most friendly and helpful of any place we stayed. We were in room 307 which had a great view of the golf course and lake. The room was spacious and well furnished. The golf course was nice, although the rental clubs were not so hot. A little out of the way, so it was helpful to have a rental car. The food was great. We at at the hotel two of the three nights because it was that good.

Stayed here for 1 night. Fabulous location especially in good weather, with amazing views over the golf course and the loch. Rooms excellent, very spacious and clean. The big let down was breakfast and it was very disappointing to say the least- we did feed this back to the receptionist on our departure. The food was tepid and wasn't replenished, we were served by young staff who clearly required some further training- one with very chipped nail polish- not too good for food hygiene standards. We asked for tea for 2 people and were given a teapot for one which barely filled 1 1/3 cups. We did ask for a larger teapot but received the same size pot on our refill so I gave up after that - there were larger teapots waiting to go back to the kitchen along with used breakfast crockery on a small trolley affair which I don't expect to see in a 4 star resort. The young waitresses were more interested in chatting in a less obvious part of the room than serving the few guests that were in attendance for breakfast.
I would go back as this is a really nice place and hopefully the breakfast issue will be resolved

Was staying for a wedding and have to say from start to finish the service was incredible. Everything we asked for help with they were more than prepared to go the extra mile to help with. One of our party was unwell during our stay and they arranged everything from a taxi to the hospital and ordering us pizza when we returned late and the kitchen was closed. At the airport I realised I had lost my European health card only to have them call and say they had found it and were posting it to me.

My wife and I stayed here on 27th 28th 29th May . This is probably the best 4 star hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are clean spacious and very well appointed It is a family run hotel where the staff are very friendly and helpful The food is of a high standard and service is prompt and efficient.The golf course is of a good standard and the back nine overlooking The Shannon is quite spectacular The hotel exudes comfort quality and peacefulness and is a perfect place. to unwind put your feet up and enjoy

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Shannon view in the new section of the hotel

What a superb setting the Glasson Country House Hotel has.

The hotel and golf course sets a very high quality standard and from my experience prides itself accordingly.

The food and service are exceptional as are the hotel rooms. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable.

The staff are friendly and efficient and are always eager to please.

We played golf also and the course is tremendous, the quality of the course only compliments the hotel.

I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Not that the standard room is inferior quality but, It's well worth upgrading to a Deluxe or exe...

Dear Kenfarey,
It is wonderful to hear that you had a fantastic weekend with us at Glasson and thank you for taking the time to share this with us. The lakeside setting is amazing and really does offer a great escape for our guests, Tom & Breda, when they were building Glasson really wanted to ensure that the bedrooms were extra spacious to ensure a really comfortable stay.

I have passed your feedback on to all the Glasson Team to ensure they know how much we appreciate their efforts. We would be delighted to welcome you back to Glasson again soon and thank you again for sharing your Glasson Experience.

Glasson Golf and Country House was our chosen venue this year.for our annual away Golf outing. We had a group of 60 ladies for golf, dinner and overnight stay. From the first contact by email to Gareth in Glasson to the last person leaving on Thursday it was an absolute excellent experience in exemplary customer service. When we arrived in Glasson from 10.30 a.m. coffee, tea and scones were available and laid out for us. Almost all the rooms were ready which meant we were all able to check in - this saved a lot of time and hassle and made it so easy.
The course was beautiful and is a credit to the course staff, we enjoyed the lovely views over the lakes and the good golf! After the golf we were treated to a freshly cooked and beautifully presented 3 course dinner. I could not recommend Glasson highly enough for anybody organising their golf outings, just email Gareth and see how it easy it can be.
Marie, Newlands Golf Club.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite, well worth the extra.
